    I have been looking at rental prices for Dec 28 - January 4 for several months and prices don't seem to be changing much. Standard SUV for $359 is still the best I can find. Has anyone had success with other companies and coupons?

    Budget continues to be our best bet as well. We have a one-week SUV rental for $302 taxes included, less a $25 coupon for a final total of $277.

    Alamo (who we love) is still showing this morning as almost $800 for a compact car :faint: .

    You're going to be onsite, right? Your signature says that you'll be at POFQ in 2012. The Budget at
    WORLDGATE RESORT

    3011 MAINGATE LANE
    KISSIMMEE, FL 34747 US

    still has cheap(er) cars. Use the DIS code Y937800 and the $20 off coupon MUWZ003 and you will get a full size for $208 with taxes (the coupon comes off when you return the car).

    Pick up service is available and you can drop off at MCO. If you belong to Costco I think it would be $167 with taxes using the Costco codes (special pricing plus $40 off). You need to search for DAVENPORT, FL for this location to come up on Costco Travel, but KISSIMMEE, FL for it to come up on Budget's website.

    You will NEVER get the super-duper cheap deals that people got in the start of the month over NYE so you'll need to be satisfied with "good, not great".

    Not sure what type of vehicle you were looking for but picking up FLL and return RSW is $134 inc taxes for a compact with Alamo through Costco.

    I'm picking up & dropping off at MCO on 12/23 - 12/27 and the best I can do is $186 at National. Feels like I'm buying the car instead of renting it for a few days.

    Just booked with Budget. Pick up & Drop off @ the Doubletree on Hotel Plaza Blvd. Pick up 12/26, drop off 01/02. I used BCD Y937800 & coupon MUWZ003. Rate is $199 (tax incl) plus we get $20 off on the return.

    Just wanted to report that this worked like a charm for us!

    Took a taxi (rudest female driver EVER!!!) - taxi charge was $31 (they suggested 15 - 20% tip) - I gave $3 (didn't even want to do that as she was horrible!) Anyway... checked in, we had reserved the most economical car class possible - ended up driving a 2 Door Black MUSTANG all week!! It was DD and I so it was perfect! $110 + taxi fare for 5 nights - thanks robinB and DisBoards!

    I am so frustrated with myself! I booked a minivan for about $250/week starting on December 30. I got the code from this thread. Now I can't find the email confirmation. I don't remember what site or company I booked through to try to retrieve the reservation. Trying to read back to find where I posted on here!!

    I think you booked through Budget. In one of your earlier posts you asked about using Travelocity to book a minivan through Budget.

    You might want to double check your rates. I had a compact reserved through Alamo for $233 and I just rebooked for only $183 (a mid-size!!) - Dec. 31 - Jan. 9! I used the Rentalcarmomma.com code.

    Awesome, thank you! I need to be more organized. :) Where do I find this code? I was thinking $250 for a mini van during a holiday week sounded great, but would of course love to find cheaper!

    You can go to Rentalcarmomma.com and there is a link. I also signed up with Alamo insiders so that also helped to reduce the price. Was originally picking up from the Dolphin but adding a day and picking up at the airport is saving us that $50!

    Have a great vacation!!
